"Magic is Something You Make" Paint Pour

"Magic is Something You Make" Paint Pour

Posted by DecoArt on Apr 24th 2018

I have to be honest here, I was not super intrigued by the paint pouring trend to begin with. It looked challenging, messy, and it just didn't really match my style. Boy, was I wrong! I have kind of... Fallen in love with Paint Pouring, especially when it comes to sign making. How cool are these canvases that have been turned into signs with the gold vinyl cut with my Cricut Maker? They have that fun geode look that is so popular right now and they look perfect in my daughter's room! Want to learn how to make them? Scroll on down for a supply list and a quick video tutorial.

This is a great project to do together with your kiddos. Let them pick out the colors they love, and watch how they enjoy how the colors become magical on the canvas. Here is a quick video of my process:
